Is this what you mean? OpenLDAP uses a set of
-1 enable all debugging
0 no debugging
1 trace function calls
2 debug packet handling
4 heavy trace debugging
8 connection management
16 print out packets sent and received
So for example, a debug level of 17 would trace
function calls and print out packets.
For a long time, I have wanted documented guidelines
for what information should be logged at what level.

How do people feel about consolidating the text files
into a single HTML-ized version.
Again, I've got volunteers so if we think it would
be a good idea, I'll help coordinate it.
